Cox Plate entry Idaho St Leger favourite

LONDON Sep 6 2016

Cox Plate entrant Idaho is the raging favourite for the St Leger, the final Classic of the British racing season.

The Aidan O'Brien-trained Idaho is one of 15 colts left in the Saturday's race at the latest declaration stage.

Placed in the Derby at Epsom and the Irish equivalent, the three-year-old was a comfortable winner of the Great Voltigeur Stakes at York last time out.

O'Brien can also call on Royal Ascot and Curragh Cup winner Sword Fighter, Housesofparliament, Kellstorm, The Major General, Triplicate and Unicorn.

Jim Bolger could run Twilight Payment in the Godolphin colours, while Pat Shanahan has left in The Tartan Spartan.

John Gosden may have ruled out Dante winner Wings Of Desire but still has a solid contender in Muntahaa, owned by Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum.

The Ed Dunlop-trained Red Verdon has run a series of good races at the highest level this season, most recently when second in the Grand Prix de Paris.
